Updated info on show.
Jazz at Cafe Society is a new musical starring Gwyneth Herbert, China Moses (Daughter of Dee Dee Bridgewater and Alexander Stewart, narrated by Max Reinhardt and written and directed by Alex Webb. 
From 1938 to 1947 Cafe Society played host to some of the finest musical talent of the 20th century, including Billie Holiday, Lena Horne, Sarah Vaughan, Count Basie and many others. It was also the first New York music venue to racially desegregate both the audience and the bandstand. Jazz at Cafe Society tells the story of this historic club and the quiet hero who founded it, Barney Josephson.
The Times gave it a four-star rave ("a genuine treat") on its London Jazz Festival premiere.
